The International Criminal Law programme of the University of Amsterdam aims to train a new generation of criminal lawyers who are capable of transcending disciplinary borders. For that purpose, we offer a curriculum that enhances a broad and deep understanding of relevant issues of international and cross-border justice and the development of academic skills through in-depth analysis and experiential learning.
Two tracks of International Criminal Law
The two tracks start with a common first semester at the University of Amsterdam that includes an introduction to common and civil law and procedural and substantive law of international courts and tribunals. You will visit The Hague, city of international justice, and work with international renowned practitioners, including judges and prosecutors of the International Criminal Court. We offer a range of elective courses such as international humanitarian law, human rights law and the theory and history of international law. Students who participate in the joint program with Columbia Law School (track 1) will move to New York at the end of the 1st semester.
